Haitian TPS Program Will End in July 2019

Haitian TPS Program Will End in July 2019

DHS ended the protected immigration status of some 2,500 Nicaraguans on November 6.

While Haiti is still simply unable to absorb a large number of returnees at this time, new leadership in that island country provides the United States with a renewed opportunity to empower the Haitian people to advance our shared principles of freedom and democracy and to ultimately rebuild a stronger and even more resilient Haiti.

The move to terminate TPS for Haitians comes after a similar step was taken against 5,000 Nicaraguans.

Even with all these accomplishments, the model said that this particular fashion show will always have a special place in her heart.

A group of protesters, including some personally affected by the Trump administration's decision to end TPS for thousands of Haitians allowed into America after the devastating 2010 quake, will hit the road to the President's Mar-a-Lago home Tuesday in an effort for their voices to be heard.

The organizations say affected Haitians face a "terrible choice" of returning to a still-struggling nation or remaining in the US illegally.

These include but are not limited to community forums on TPS, panel discussions with Haitian community organizers, stakeholder teleconferences, regular meetings with TPS beneficiaries, news releases to the Haitian community, meetings with Haitian government officials, meetings at local churches, and listening sessions. They cited ongoing economic and political difficulties in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, as well as a still-raging cholera epidemic. But they are people of color, and the notion he'd ship as many of them out of the country as possible is what got this president* elected.

TPS status for an additional 200,000 Salvadorans, here since El Salvador was struck by a series of earthquakes in 2001, is due to expire in January.

The temporary status covers some 435,000 people from nine countries ravaged by natural disasters or war, who came to the United States legally or otherwise. During this timeframe, USCIS will work with the State Department, other DHS components and the Government of Haiti to help educate relevant stakeholders and facilitate an orderly transition. They also highlighted that termination will create labor dislocations in certain construction, food processing, hospitality, and healthcare industries that have relied on Haitian TPS workers since 2010.

A decision on 195,000 recipients from El Salvador is expected in January. "In the midst of rebuilding and revitalizing its overall infrastructure, large influxes of nationals will disrupt and negatively impact the nation's path towards recovery", Opal Tometi, BAJI's executive director and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, said in a statement. Duke originally planned to extend TPS for Honduras, but was pressured by Kelly to expel them, according to the Washington Post.

Fiji defeat New Zealand 4-2 in thrilling quarter-final
Captain Kevin Naiqama was reduced to tears after Fiji stunned New Zealand to set up a World Cup semi-final against Australia. It was a shock result but a deserved one in what was only the second try-less match in World Cup history.

In May the Trump administration announced it would extend protections to Haitians who fled to the USA until January 2018, but might shut down the program early in the new year. After the United Nations diminished its presence in the country last month, it is more important than ever that the United States support worldwide efforts to enhance and maintain security in Haiti and build up its capacity for ensuring the country's security. She said it could have repercussions far beyond TPS status for a single nationality.
